It was fun to watch the Astros’ bats break out in the eighth inning last night as they took game three of the four game series 7-3. The Astros recaptured a 2.5 lead in the AL West, and Josh James debuted last night. Although he gave up a three run home run and had shaky command early on, his potential as a TOR pitcher should be crystal clear to any experienced observer of last night’s game. Did I say 101 on the gun?
Tonight Gerrit Cole faces Showtime, Shohei OOOOOOOHtani in his first game back from the DL on the Sunday Night Game of the Week on ESPN. Alright.
Here is the Astros lineup.
